Arsenal sets a high asking price for Nuno Tavares as they transfer-list left-back

After acquiring Kai Havertz and finalising agreements to sign Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber, Arsenal is now prepared to offload some of their players as they continue their busy summer transfer activities.

Among the players the club is willing to part ways with is Nuno Tavares. While he hasn’t been a regular contributor for Arsenal, the club is not willing to let him depart for a low fee.

According to a report on Tuttomercatoweb, Arsenal has set an asking price of 25 million euros for the defender. Despite struggling on loan in the second half of last season, Tavares made a positive start to his spell at Olympique Marseille and has the potential to meet expectations at a new club.

By setting a significant asking price, Arsenal aims to ensure that they receive fair compensation for Tavares, considering his potential and the interest he may generate in the transfer market.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tavares is struggling to meet expectations at the Emirates, but the left-back will do well at a smaller club.

However, it would be hard for us to get a club that will pay 25m euros for his signature at the moment.

If he had done well at OM, we could have been able to ask for that much money to sell him, but we must bring our valuation down to achieve a quick sale.

  1. It’s actually good business on the part of Arsenal. You ask 25 million, so when a club underbids around 15 million, it’s close to a realistic evaluation.

    Both clubs happy; got him less than asking price and Arsenal got a slight profit from his original transfer. Personally 12-15 million is a profit and gets him off the books.

    He hasn’t improved enough as a fullback, and we have far better on the wings.

    He’s like Lokogna and I’d say Vieira too; not at the level we need, and no room in a competitive squad for passengers to catch up.

    1. I agree with you but the problem is when have you seen MA/Edu accept a lower offer for a player before? It doesn’t happen

      They try play hard ball, always lose and then loan out/run contract down/rip up contract….wasting the clubs moneyand will then want a big transfer budget again.

  2. We have to set the asking price bit higher as during negotiation it is bound to come down .

  3. Unpredictable or self destructive that may depend on who your sources is.
    When he picks the ball up, nobody ever knows what’s he’s going to do.

    Such is his technical ability that he can charge his way down the touch line, cut inside on the under lap and do everything else in between, it’s not pretty but its almost always tough to defend against, it’s like he’s making up those moves on the spot.

    However sometimes he’s too quick for his own good, his legs act first then his head second, but if Arsenal has seen enough to slap a £25 mill price tag, who knows crazier things has happened in the market.

    1. Fully agree about his ability. Players like this just need some coaching, they can become a solid squad player if coached up.

      1. Arteta is not a coach. He is a manager

        He can only manage the potentials that you have and if don’t have the required potential and talent that suit his team, he replaces you.

        That is why he goes for expensive players.

    2. GS,
      This is one player i believe was played out of oposition at Arsenal. He should be tra trained into left wing or right CAM. to cutt in and shoot.
      He lacks defensive qualities.

      1. PJ-SA, zamind
        Am in agreement with you both but here is the problem i have.

        Before Arsenal purchase the kid, we were aware he has a little hot head, having known that and still went ahead there should have been something to deal with his temperament.

        But no doubt he has raw talent

  4. I think Tavares is a good defender bt not at arsenal level so if there are suitors arsenal should accept and part ways with him at a good price

  5. He can do well for teams that are not in any pressure of winning anything. Not disrespecting any team.

  6. Why not aim for that fee? Every time Arsenal go for a player we’re quoted telephone nos.If West Ham want him they can cough up.That’s what you get for messing us about with the Rice deal.What goes around comes around.
    And please.No Italian clubs.We don’t want a mars bar & a can of coke on loan deal.

  7. We’ll be lucky to get 10m I do not rate this player well at all he’s an athlete who chose the wrong sport he’s not a footballer he’s just strong and fast. He wouldn’t be the first athlete to make the jump into football, but he should never have been anywhere close to Arsenal

  8. I think Nunu Tavares should be a DM. This position suit him well. He can be a monster as a DM. The guy love to shoot and why Arteta can’t get it? If he sells Nunu Tavares Arteta in future he will definitely regret. I don’t mind if Lukongo is sold. Taveres is a good dribler and his shoots to the goal post are lethal. As for Balogun must prove himself on pre season just like what Saliba did last season. It seems like he is threatening Arteta that if he can’t be the main man he will leave. If I were Arteta I wouldn’t sell him but freeze him on the bench. He is unstsble player. Bukayo Saka and Martinelli earned their spot by working hard. Balogun wants everything to be given to him on a silver platter and that is why he couldn’t be patient to earn his place on England national team…..rather joined USA international team. I don’t see too much future in Balogun…..he gonna fall very soon.
